Organizers need your help to change the name of a Golden Gate Park meadow to honor Robin Williams.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, local comedians Will and Debi Durst want to rename Sharon Meadow after Williams. To do so, they need political and financial support. San Francisco's Comedy Day has been held for 36 years at Sharon Meadow.

Organizers say Williams anonymously donated money to hold the free annual event and even financed the entire budget one year. They need to get approval from the board of supervisors and raise $100,000 to cover the cost of changing signs in the park.
